    I find it very poor watching Pakistani players sledging their own team mates from the national team in the PSL. We saw Shinwari sledging Fakhar previously. Hasan was throwing the dust off his shoulders after dismissing Imad today. A couple of seasons back there was this big fight between Shahzad and Wahab.

    What do you guys think of it? Is it just the heat of the moment or do the players need to calm down a bit when it comes to their Pakistani team mates?

    I think it’s brilliant. You’re playing for your club, if your international team mate is in the opposite side it shouldn’t reduce your intensity, in fact it should increase the rivalry/desire to get one over my international team mate.

    It makes it more competitive.

    There's nothing wrong with it. This is nothing, if you ever watch proper domestic matches they really have a go at each other all the time.

    In fact, I'd argue they probably sledge each other more whilst playing in the same team for Pakistan than they do playing in opposite teams in the PSL. Oathgate, footballgate, and so on.

    A part of me thinks a few players in that team don't like eachother and I can see Imad being quite easily disliked

    I've seen fellow countrymen in the NFL, MLB, NBA, etc come to blows. Have to separate leagues from internationals.

    Dafuk. They're playing against each other. Do you not sledge your friends when you play sports with them? They're playing for a different team and it's fair game.

    One of the things that could land these numb nuts into trouble is, if they develop the habit of looking at the batsman and display stupid celebration after getting him out. This is against the ICC code of conduct in the international arena.

    Rashid Khan was penalized just for raising his finger and making an "out" sign while looking at the batsman after taking the wicket. He didn't display any animation or emotions.

    And here, these dimwits are making cut throat signs looking straight into the eyes of the batsman after getting his wicket - and that too, after the batsman has hit the bowler all over the park like an astray dog. What an entertaining comedy.

    Hate it.

    Wouldn't mind one bit if they did it at intl level but even when they do sledge they don't who to sledge how to sledge and when to sledge and no they are not villagers before pak fans come up with the usual bs 'oh they are uneducated villagers' lol.

    Yeah I think I heard one picked up by the stumps mic as Shoiab Malik was batting.
    Some wicket keeper was telling his guys something along the lines, "Shoaib Bhai ki leyni hai !!!"

    I mean, on one hand you call him "Bhai" and then you turn around say, "Ab iski leyni hai" in the same sentence - lol hahaha,, this is comedy !!

    No. That’s not that bad. He’s just saying we need his wicket that’s all.

    Yeah, we all know, it's a double edge sword. It could be taken either way.

    But seriously, these cartoons look funny with their wicket taking celebration.

    Just look at Rauf guy doing to Christian as posted by Del - this is a straight ban for a few games in the international arena.

    These guys should learn how to be a bit more smarter and graceful, IMO.

    Rauf does look kinda stupid IMO. The Malik thing is a non-issue. It's a sign of respect lol

    I dont like the over the top celebrations but its a part of modern cricket now.

    I dont think the sledging of international team mates is a bad thing though. Its just a bit of fun.

    No issue with it as long as they don't turn into pussies when it comes to international games (where it actually matters).

    Also that Rauf thing was very stupid from him. Looks like a complete idiot.

    You cant have a go at your captain. Hopefully Rauf gets removed from the team over this
